We all know what that means of course, but to understand it, to really understand it in our soul, sometimes we have to live it. We have to face some life altering adversity, an illness perhaps, or maybe someone we love dies, and then we know. We know in a way we didn’t before how fragile and precious life is. And if we’re very lucky, and perhaps just a little bit wise, we’re given the opportunity to translate that knowing into all the rest of our days, where all our thoughts and actions and interactions with others become something more, something sacred. And just like that, we’ve transformed the darkness into light.
